Dream of Home Tonight

100! This is my 100th blog post! I'm proud of that number because in the past, I haven't been able to keep up with blogs that I started (although I really wish I did. I would love to be able to look back and remember my time in Egypt even more). I did keep a blog (cough LiveJournal cough cough) while I was in Germany in high school but that was before I knew it was a blog. To me, it was an online journal where I wrote way too many crazy/personal things quite aptly titled "Nikki's In Germany." Clever, right? ANYWAY!

For DOHT's 100th Blog Post I've decided to tell you all about how I came up with the name of my blog!

Can you guess where Dream of Home Tonight came from? Any ideas? You might have thought..."Oh well, she probably misses home so she dreams about it." Or maybe you are a lyrics-genius or into the same music as me to realize that the name Dream of Home Tonight actually comes from the lyrics of one of my favorite bands' songs! Now any ideas?

I have only seen this band in concert one time and it was actually in Slovenia! My first trip to Ljubljana, back in 2009 I believe. Tomislav found out they were playing and got tickets right away and I was so excited. It was an amazing show, with the dreamiest and most stylish lead singer singing the hell out of their songs! The singer went on to do a solo album although the band has not split up and will hopefully be releasing a new album this year! Does this help at all?

So the lyrics go:

Will your system be alright
When you dream of home tonight

Whenever I hear this song, I just have to wait to hear this part of the song before I can go on (and I probably scream-sing it then). This happened when we were outlet shopping in Italy; couldn't leave the store until I heard those words! And you can be SURE that this song will play at our wedding and I will be scream singing those words!

So by now, you may have guessed it or you probably know - it's...

The Killer's - Human

A great song from a great band! I couldn't be happier that my blog name came from the text of one of their songs because they truly write from the heart and that's where I write from too!

This pic is from a scan I took of visa evidence we needed. Gotta love being an international couple and having to prove that you guys actually are a real couple in order to be together. The bottom left pic is from concert day :)

Did you have any idea where my blog name came from?
